You Have the Answer

Like vanishing dew,
a passing apparition
or the sudden flash
of lightning -- already gone --

You are who you are when nobody's watching.  ~ Stephen Fry

Non nobis solum nati sumus. (Not for ourselves alone are we born.)  ~  Cicero

Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience a still, small voice says to us, something is out of tune.  ~ C. G. Jung

You have the answer.  Just get quiet enough to hear it.  ~ Pat Obuchowski
